This section gives a selection of some of the rates in force in the UK for post to overseas -- it is very much only a start, but should be useful to answer questions about the postage rate paid on an item in the areas that it covers. It is hoped to expand this over time with further detail for the more complicated areas (e.g. pre-UPU rates, pre-1947 airmail rates) to make it more comprehensive.

Assistance is welcomed -- indeed solicited -- from any collectors who can make additional rate information available in a suitable format. Please with details.
